What happens? If I don’t?

The lights go out. We die, and are forgotten.

Frustrating, isn’t it?

A coven of transcendent, time-travelling witches wage war to restore forgotten queer histories. Yet having recently lost two of their own, and in dire need of replacements, questions begin to rise about the privilege of their power, and the power of history.

Existing outside of time and space, the coven trade the memories of their own lives on earth for power, immortality, and safety. Their role is to archive the lives and deaths of all ‘witches’ across time; to remember their names and their stories. This role, archivist, is their anchor, and they are explicitly forbidden from actively interfering with the timeline. But as the coven desperately seeks to maintain balance within their ranks and focus on the larger task at hand, tempers flare, threatening to destroy the delicate fabric of their existence and the histories they’ve curated.

An epic lyrical and theatrical exploration of these forgotten histories, ​Guerilla Sabbath​ is a fantastical reimagining of what they might have looked and sounded like. It is both a reclamation of the narrative that’s been lost and an aggressive exposé on the fallacy of the one we’ve been given.
